Placed fifth in the BBC Sound of 2011 list of the top 15 most promising new artists, UK singing sensation, Clare Maguire has recently completed a UK tour – using a dual Allen & Heath iLive digital mixing system to manage FOH and monitors.

Partly rented from PA company, SRD Group, the system comprised an iLive-80 Control Surface and an iDR0 miniRack at FOH, digitally split from an iDR-48 MixRack and an iLive-R72 Control Surface at monitor position. ‘I think it’s a great-sounding desk with so much headroom,’ says FOH engineer, Chris Fillery.

‘I mix pretty loud, and I tried really hard to run the outputs into distortion, but I failed. The parametric EQ is great and musical. I also enjoy the choice of compressor types, it’s nice to have elements which help you add a bit of character to the mix. The FX are excellent – the reverbs sound really good and the ADT and sub bass synthesis are well thought-out.’

Fillery used the iLive-80 control surface with additional control provided through the MixPad iPad app. ‘Having the compact surface and iPad  was really useful for the size of the tour venues, which were 300-600 capacity. Plus, being able to check and adjust your mix anywhere in the venue is amazing.  I also love the RTA on the graphic for whatever channel you have solo'd – it’s genius!’ Fillery concludes.
